Name: Conner Edmonds
Height: 6’5″
Weight: 245 lbs.
High school: Richfield (WI) Germantown
Position: Tight end
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #86
Last year: I did not rank Edmonds. He redshirted.

Edmonds was a preferred walk-on out of Wisconsin in 2016, and he redshirted last season, like most walk-ons do. He’s not the type of athlete who is likely to be a standout at the position, but he did play some in the spring game and looks like a tight end who might be a designated walk-on blocker. Michigan has a couple other tight ends who are struggling to block, and they have run multiple tight end sets in the past. Edmonds probably won’t be in the first group of tight ends to see the field, but late in games or if an injury occurs throughout the season, he could make more frequent appearances.

Prediction: Backup tight end
